    This is one similar to one featured in the 1903 catalogue.
    The craftsmanship on this one is absolutely incredible.
    There are no markings on the base other than a number 5.
    I would love to have been a fly on the wall, to see whats its seen.

    Hi, Iani,

    What a wonderful old stove! Very nice, indeed. I have one very big request, though, Sir: Could you please take and post larger photos of your nice stoves, like this one? For some reason, you seem to post lots of very tiny photos, and it's almost impossible for us to truly enjoy the great stoves you share with us, when trying hard to see them in such tiny little photos. In any case, I'm pretty sure that most of the rest of our CCS members would like to see larger photos of your great stoves, too, so if it is possible, please do post them. Thanks, very much, for sharing this great stove with us, and I look forward to seeing it in greater detail through larger photos! Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    Hi Doc

    See what you mean - there was a time when you could use the CCS Optimser without logging in, but for some reason it changed a while back.
    I use the same optimiser as CCS, I picked it up off the web, and the width settings were slightly different. Sorted.
    Kind regards
    Ian

    Morning, Ian,

    Thanks for getting back to me about this. I use the CCS Optimizer, too, and most of the time, my photos are much larger than the ones you have posted on this great stove. I'd love to see them at least four time larger than they are, and even bigger, if possible. The great stoves, like yours, need to be given a grand format, with huge photos, so that we can all enjoy them to their fullest! 8) :thumbup: :D :D Take care, and God Bless!

    Every Good Wish,
    Doc

    This is a smashing stove! I really like that kind of shape.
    And it's good to see that patina. I guess you just cleaned it gently?
    The way the engravings stands out when filled with old history (some ignoramus would call it dirt [-X ) is so good.

    I must agree with Doc! Bigger pictures would be nice. 640 by 480 is a good and proper size for this site.

    Cheers,
